When Hollywood wants a good plot, they turn to good books.  When I want a good book, I turn to the library.  Here are a few forthcoming films that are based on books that you can get at the library.

August:  The Help, by Katherine Stockett (Estel just told you about that one.)

September:  I Don’t Know How She Does It, by Allison Pearson.

November:  Breaking Dawn, by Stephenie Meyer;  Hugo (The Invention of Hugo Cabret), by Brian Selznick;  Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy,  by John Le Carre;  Puss in Boots, by Charles Perrault  (I don’t think the movie will be very much like the book, but every kid should meet the original Puss in Boots. Plus I like Antonio Banderas.)

December:  The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, by Stieg Larsson; Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, by Jonathan Safran Foer; War Horse, by Michael Morpurgo; We Bought a Zoo, by Benjamin Mee (get the audiobook at Library To Go).

And coming up in 2012:  The Hunger Games, The Great Gatsby, The Borrowers, and The Lorax!

Get all these books and more at the Orland Free Library, then go enjoy a movie.
